The last few weeks have been rough. Rough is really putting it lightly. Logan went on a sleep strike which brought his resistance down and he ended up getting sick.....sick and angry. He didn't want to take any medicine which didn't help matters. I think we are finally making strides on getting his nighttime rythm back but he is still acting out. He's not acting out at school, with the therapists, at gym....it's all coming to a boiling point at home. Just getting him dressed for school was like performing an exorcism. He screamed, hit, scratched, kicked. I know, I know....don't take it personal. It's hard not to when the slap in the face really IS a slap in the face.
I love him unconditionally with every ounce of my being and understand that home is the safe place where you can let it all hang out. It's where you can be yourself after you've held it together to fit in all day. It just sucks to be on the receiving end of that.
My brain is tired and there is so much to do......get ready for the support group meeting tonight, try to make sense out of all of our medical deductibles so we can file our taxes, sort out what his summer plan is going to be (yes, it's not even Feb and camps start booking soon) and cleaning this mess of a house.
I want....no I NEED a vacation!

If anyone is looking to give their blog some giddyup, you should contact Nikki. It is all for a great cause....kids who need help. She charges only $20. $15 of this goes to supporting her humanitarian trip to the Dominican Republic and $5 goes to a charity. The charity for this month is an orphanage for children with special needs in Santiago, DR. Check out her blog for details!

Here's Curly pulling in his new car....a 2008 Komfort Edition V-Dub Passat in Mocha Brown. It is sweeeeeet! He let me drive it a little tonight...what a guy! I'm so happy to have some VW turbo back in the Santilli house. This thing smokes :) It was around 10 degrees out tonight so here is a pic from Motortrend.

Here is a look in pictures from the past month or so :)
We also happened upon the Jolly Old Elf in a shopping plaza...Logan was in his glory (again!)
Devon....not so in her glory
How precious is this face?
The Fam and Santa (Logan is, once again, in his glory.....this is the guy that HOOKS you UP!)
Christmas Eve at our house with Curly's family. Devon LOVES her wagon!
Mommy's Little Guitar Hero
Devon and Aunt Fannie
I took the plunge and got Devon's hair trimmed. Her bangs were in her eyes and her mullet reveled anything the great city of Parma could provide. We headed over to Cuts & Curls for Boys and Girls and Devon had her 1st spa experience. She loved it! Her throne was a Dora Jeep and she danced to Dora music the entire time.....almost so much that it made it hard on the stylist. We had a great time!
I promise to not be a stranger!!! Stay tuned for more :)
